Destination in brief

Capri is a very touristy, small island five kilometers from mainland Italy,  the Gulf of Naples. The island's size is 10.4 square kilometers only.

There are two towns on the island: Capri and Anacapri. The city center of Capri is Piazzetta. Anacapri is higher up the slope of Mount Solaro. There is also a village called Marina Grande, where the port operates.

On Capri, the high season is from June to the end of August. August is the culmination because, at this time, about twenty thousand visitors come here.

May, September, and October are optimal for tourists who wish to avoid the crowd.
